CHILDREN - Billy Boy

CHILDREN - Billy Boy / Life Of Today (Basf / Reca 1973)
Although not on the same level as releases by their compatriots Walkers, "Billy Boy" is a fine example of Danish glam rock. Children were Finn Kollerup, Jørn Brun Pedersen, John Pedersen and Jens Sørensen. They released about six singles and one LP (you can listen to an extract on Crazee Kids blog) between 1973 and 1976. Danish pressing.

Winston - I Won't Let Anna Go

WINSTON - I Won't Let Anna Go / Brother Jim (York 1974)
Not sure if they are the same Winston who released the single "Mona" on Bradleys Records in 1973, and which is already on this blog. However, "I Won't Let Anna Go" is a cool glam pop song written by Michael Blount, who released several discs on York Records in the early 70s. Produced by co-founder of the Strawbs, Tony Hooper. UK issue.
